Inspiring Quotes
at Dad's Memorial Service

What is in itself mortal, through history
attains immortality; what is absent becomes
present, what is ancient becomes new.
A young man quickly matches the full
development of the old; and if an old man
of seventy is considered wise because of his
experience of life, how much wiser is he
who covers a span of a thousand or three
thousand years. For each man seems to
have lived for as many thousands of years
as the span of history he has studied.

— Marsilio Ficino

He who binds to himself a joy
Doth the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

— William Blake

I have seen, have heard, have lived;
In the depth of the known have felt
The truth that exceeds all knowledge
Which fills my heart with wonder and I sing.

— Rabindranath Tagore
